    MY FIRM BELIEVE Sir @Ali Anani, you know better than me about the law of thermodynamics and there is no point, i guess, to be confused with external and internal law. the intake of oxygen we inhale, eventually the residue after we use to produce energy, the excess being exhaled as carbon di oxide, an essential gas for photosynthesis, an inevitable condition for our existence! and obviously having a direction for us to thrive vigorously, ushering betterment for mankind. i guess, there is no close or open system as such, as our body politic is being derived from open system and our structure of D.N.A. is also a testimony of open system. we cannot rule out, when we are in mother's fetus, through umbilical chord, we receive the external world's vibes by virtue of mother's impulses, necessarily being received from the open system! so synchronicity is itself a determining affair, an inbuilt mechanism of this universe, where we are mere an instrument, having no choice apart from following it religiously! however, wonderful and intriguing post sir. enjoyed read. thank you very much for the share.

    You have identified the issues surrounding the human dynamic, by asking the questions of cognitive dissonance. When fuel(internal) and water (external) come together they don't mix. We have a EPA superfund problem or we have an additive we can add that makes the fuel useable. Alcohol.

    I will leave it to your great mind to flush out the metaphoric value of Alcohol @Ali Anani

    There is a serious difference between all the artwork created in the world and "art". Artwork is a thing which says nothing more than that "we made something" - a physical thing, a product. At other times our artwork begins to speak on its own. It reaches out to others and touches and moves them. This is what has happened here: : universal impact. It is a rare 0ccurrence in artwork but is always present in art. Art - that which is transferred from our "insides" to the canvas or paper or stone - and once freed to speak - emerges from the artwork, reaching beyond the creator to speak and share itself with and "give" to others because that is what art does.. Bravo. This is "art". (and I'm not easily brought into the common ordinary fold that considers everything we do art.)

    This story touched me Pascal. Being a child growing up in a military family we moved constantly. I had siblings, 6 in fact and all extroverts, which at times was overwhelming to this introvert. I too was described as a 'loner'. But then I was shuffled around, a lot. I lived with grandparents from ages 2-5, and they moved almost every year, whenever my grandfather moved on to minister a new church. Then I was sent to my Mother when it was time to start school. I turned to books and became a bookworm, always reading, because to be quite honest; I always felt like the outsider around my mother and siblings. As I look back now I realize my friends were Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, Laura Ingells Wilder and so many other characters...
    These memories stay with out, become part of us, and as I always started my stories; we are all our histories.

    Love the picture, and the story @Pascal Derrien. I can identify with the multiple moves as a kid. My father was transferred to new communities on a fairly regular basis.

    Your story awoke a memory of a poem that was in a school book from when I was in early grades at school. I only remember the first line, but thanks to Google, it turns out it was written by Robert Louis Stevenson and is quite germane to your post.

    My Shadow
    BY ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON
    I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me,
    And what can be the use of him is more than I can see.
    He is very, very like me from the heels up to the head;
    And I see him jump before me, when I jump into my bed.

    The funniest thing about him is the way he likes to grow—
    Not at all like proper children, which is always very slow;
    For he sometimes shoots up taller like an india-rubber ball,
    And he sometimes gets so little that there's none of him at all.

    He hasn't got a notion of how children ought to play,
    And can only make a fool of me in every sort of way.
    He stays so close beside me, he's a coward you can see;
    I'd think shame to stick to nursie as that shadow sticks to me!

    One morning, very early, before the sun was up,
    I rose and found the shining dew on every buttercup;
    But my lazy little shadow, like an arrant sleepy-head,
    Had stayed at home behind me and was fast asleep in bed.

    "The Scarecrow"

    "All winter through I bow my head
    beneath the driving rain;
    the North Wind powders me with snow
    and blows me black again;
    at midnight 'neath a maze of stars
    I flame with glittering rime,
    and stand above the stubble, stiff
    as mail at morning-prime.
    But when that child called Spring, and all
    his host of children come,
    scattering their buds and dew upon
    these acres of my home,
    some rapture in my rags awakes;
    I lift void eyes and scan
    the sky for crows, those ravening foes,
    of my strange master, Man.
    I watch him striding lank behind
    his clashing team, and know
    soon will the wheat swish body high
    where once lay a sterile snow;
    soon I shall gaze across a sea
    of sun-begotten grain,
    which my unflinching watch hath sealed
    for harvest once again."~ Walter de la Mare {1873-1956}

    Great subject @Sushmita Thakare Jain. It's refreshing that more people are talking about Anxiety disorder which affects many but they suffer in silence. @David B. Grinberg, thank you for tagging me and it's true... there is still a stigma attached. What's upsetting is when people prey on others with this illness by offering dime store advice. Those of us that suffer can be vulnerable but we are also fairly well informed. We can tell if someone is truly trained vs. selling us a crock of poo. We are also in tune to those who understand it from a Medical Perspective and/or from a personal perspective. Many people peddle programs that are not approved to be utilized by mainstream counselors. I'm experiencing a very tough time right now and I've had people who listen with truly good intentions and others offer advice because it's what they are selling per se. I have family members that tell me they understand and want me to feel better but get very frustrated if it messes up their day. So, we not only have the illness to combat but the guilt that we live with knowing our illness affects those around us. Sometimes it's a lose/lose. Some people feel others would be better off if they just left. I have been very moody lately, which is not like me. If I have appeared moody online, I apologize, it's not my intention to upset anyone. Her book looks interesting Sushmita, thank you for sharing. Sorry if I'm all over the place.

    Thank you for this buzz, Sushmita, which I have shared on three hives. The issue of anxiety is one that affects countless millions of people. However, too many people whom suffer from anxiety and related mental issues also have to face a biased societal stigma regarding mental health -- especially so-called hidden or invisible mental health impairments. However, this unfortunate societal stigma is based on nothing more than myths, fears and stereotypes. This must end. Thus, the more people speak out about this publicly, the faster the societal stigma will dissipate, hopefully. cc: @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher

    #49 I thank you dear @Jeet Sarkar for your mind-challenging questions. As I said before in a response to a comment here, sometimes having many choices may be confusing to the mind. The birds utilize fixed facts to take fixed directions such as the position of the sun and the magnetism of the earth and this way they may use simple rules in this complex world. We need sometimes to have fixed rules to follow to limit down our options and find a simple direction to follow.
    We may also recall that the magnetized beaks, for example, are not permanent magnets; in fact hey are only magnetized under certain conditions so that the molecules within may be magnetized under certain conditions. How about a similar thinking? We are not magnetized, but creative enough to learn from nature.

    Followed by sounds and then smell.

    I say smell as the third because if you observe the 24 HR cycle, rarely do both nostrils operate simultaneously in a lifestyle where we are usually seated in AC environment.

    But eyes and ears usually operate together.

    If we equate with the human body, why do we assume sight as one input, why not assume two parralelly functioning eyes...I compare it with operational and accounting double entry...In strategy we look at accounts but often are lazy to view operational entries simultaneously... The linkages behind the numbers.

    Similarly two ears not exclusive in inputs but outputs...Factual and hearsay...Outputs being same..Outlook

    2 nostrils, for risk and opportunity simultaneously...One is marketing dept and one is planning dept...Don't isolate...Structure and simplify functioning 8 hrs in office is an extremely long time..These things can be done in under 20 mins with practice.

    And yes, practice to sharpen the senses.
    Devesh Bhatt
    17/01/2017 #50 Devesh Bhatt
    Talking about paradoxes

    Evaluating inputs of our senses is done by the brain. This evaluation is not within the realm of our conscious rationality, but serves as an input.

    Our body evolves as per experience, senses improve with higher variations in the environment, and rationality improves with sensory inputs and practicing rationality.

    So the best method of sharpening senses is through varied experience, which can be natural or experimental as prescribed by rationality.

    The very discussion of senses tilts our evaluation towards the rational side and we are conditioned to assume rationality and sensory inputs as exclusive and a matter of choice and not complimentary.

    Hence the first step as reflected in your posts ..Is rational acceptance of our senses, The second step hence must be experience of the senses, effective modules for sharpening our senses...The easiest being sight

The comparison and the metaphors you used are as usual beauty of your post. But I wonder if the human eyes and nose , two critical sense organs, are magnetized then what will happen about viewing and sensing the the decisions and strategy? How human beings will reciprocate it?because magnet can only work with the limited number of metals. An intriguing post by the way sir @Ali Anani I must say! enjoy reading .

    #46 This is the irony @Alan Culler- we are still not sure of how birds do it. How birds sense their direction? As I mentioned in the buzz- nearly all the methods you summarized in your thoughtful talk. I myself believe like molecules send messages in our bodies, there are also molecules in birds that make them aware of direction. How? I am still trying to understand. The journey is a long one my friend.

    In the US a few months ago we were treated to the annual migration of the Canada Geese - a great 'V' of birds in the sky flying South. It is tempting to thing that they all follow a leader at the point of the 'V'. On further observation, one sees that the point position is rotational -the leader drops back to the position on one of the wings of the 'V."

    The ornithological hypothesis is that the point position encounters greater wind resistance and is therefore very tiring -therefore the rotation. But how do the geese all know the direction?

    Is it visual based upon landmarks?

    Is it sound based -communicated by that incessant honkink as they fly overhead -or when the gaggle mills about chaotically on the ground?

    Or does the magnetism of the poles and lines of longitude and latitude speak to them all?

    Or is it memory -individual and species memory that directs them?

    Or all of these things?

    And how would we as humans learn from this -seeing -feeling- connecting- talking -joining and moving together.

    Thank you, Ali -I always enjoy the mental adventures you lead.

    As usual, Ali Anani a beautiful post tapestry with so many threads:
    Personal purpose, inner direction and vision direction

    Strategy -understanding direction and over-coming the "conflicts and frictions" that will get in the way of execution.

    The how of purpose or vision detection -Magnetic perceptions -. or sense driven -sight and sound -more concrete -but just as hard to understand.

    And the collective behavior of the flock -all moving in the same direction.

    I'm thinking a lot about that -Thank you.

    #39 Dear @Mohammed Sultan- thanks again for engaging my mind. When scouts of bees find a good resource they waggle dance to let other bees find out the new location and the direction how to get there. The bees need to know not only where to go, but also the direction how to get there.
    As for birds that migrate to the same place annually they know the destination well ahead of time. They could travel more than 1000 km to get there. They need now more the direction how to get there because they know the destination.
    So, I agree with you and your son if birds were to migrate to different places they need first to find the destination. This what bees do as they scout different flours . They send scout bees to find a new source. The destination in this case comes first.
    Mohammed Sultan
    16/01/2017 #39 Mohammed Sultan
    Birds immigration or businesses journey is not set for specific direction,so both need focus to dwell in promising areas that worth the energy and attention given to their long journey.Setting a proper direction without focusing on what you do better than others will keep you floundering or at best just a runner.The journey often comprises a set of milestones with objectives,and with ever stopping a new direction may need to be set.Just as people may become lost,adrift,and aimless once they have reached a goal.My son, a diplomat, has once told me that- we are like the immigrating birds, every year in a different duty station, so many of us suffer from what we can call it an "arrival syndrome" or "immigration syndrome".It's not the direction itself that's important.it's the challenge to find what you thrive for.

    #34 I thank you heartedly dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit for writing a lovely comment. Till now scientists are not sure how birds do it. We know birds and animals do it, but how is still a challenging question in most cases.
    You bring two hugely relevant points. Yes, Serendipity has played a major role in our lives and has led to great discoveries. So many chemical and other discoveries weren't planned for; through serendipity they emerged. X-ray is one example.
    As for the rational thinking of man- yes, and this is an asset the man forgets to use and I feel sometimes it is better than have it and neglect it is worse than not having it at all. As I mentioned in my response to @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman how much rational thinking goes in the stock markets when greed becomes a dominant force and all lessons and data are burnt by greed.
    Inner compass and inner motivation- and now inner compass and outer compass- a great point to expand on my friend.

    #8 Thank you @Ali Anani for bringing my attention to this very interesting discussion of @Jeet Sarkar's post. As touched on in this buz and comments, movement is crucial in any process and the dynamic process of achieving balance is inherent in the movement of being "in and out" of balance. I think this is where the paradox "sits". It is not based on a system being open or closed, it is based on having one foot guiding towards balance while the other foot works at keeping the balance. As a result we are in the dynamic process of "balancing the balance" between any two elements on either side of the fulcrum.

Sir, you pointed out exactly right point regarding open and close systems but i want to state that equilibrium too is an important factor! If the equilibrium is disturbed somehow, the entire system will be collapsed irrespective of its state (whether it is open or close). Thank you very much sir for sharing such a lovely comment and for the appreciation and continuous support you are providing me.

    Thank you @Devesh Bhatt for the tag. IN fact, I booked this buzz to comment on it so you "read" my mind correctly.
    @Jeet Sarkar- this is an interesting buzz. In balance we find comfort; in instability we may go in chaos or self-organize into creative emerging structures. I wonder if balance would be ever achieved because we are open systems that exchange energy and info with the environment. Closed systems may balance; open systems go for instability. Is this the game of life?

    Still...people everywhere seem to be soothed at the prospect of significant savings on auto insurance...the glimmer of hope...the hope born of a promised lightening of their financial burden through switching to Geico.

    #61 Chas, at my house, we consider geckos our friends and guests. They eat bugs. To wit: "Florida has several lizard species that are easy to find and interesting to watch. Geckos are so common in buildings in South Florida that they are called ‘house lizards.’ " ( http://www.wildflorida.com/florida_lizards.php ). As to salmonella, most wild lizards carry the bacteria, which is one reason why we give our dogs shots known as "Lepto" vaccinations. Not only do we have an abundance of geckos around our place, but we also have iguanas, some of which measure more than 4 feet from nose to tip of tail. Cheers!

A colleague and I came into work on a Saturday, hopped on forklifts, picked and and loaded out a few semi trailers full of donated food destined for the stadium in New Orleans. While we weren't boots on the ground there, it was wonderful to play a small role in aiding our neighbors to the south.

    @Aaron Skogen , you are going to fall in love with the people and the mission. It will challenge you and it will break your heart. Right after Hurricane Katrina I was on a mission trip to help the people of the southern US in the wake of the Hurricane. In the week I spent in Bayou la Battre, Alabama we did everything from working in a food kitchen to digging and helping people make sense of the destruction on their property and their lives. We were councillors, carpenters, caretakers and construction workers. We barely slept a wink in 7 days, and we were as energized on the last day as we were on the first day. And the people were amazingly awesome.
    You have been given a gift that is priceless.

    #8 Thank you @Pascal Derrien. That fence, like most, was one i had built up in my own mind. A fence of indecision. Out of my "comfort zone" yet again. And although we never know where the road may lead, its sure fun to walk another new path. I agree, its a great journey. Thanks my friend!

    generous souls :-) I have been to places far and wide and witnessed much misery sometimes I could help sometimes not. We are all on the same side of the fence it is just an optical illusion that makes us believe we are not... Once we realise that it does not have to be demonstrative a smile, a coin, a short conversation suffice you are on a great journey.... @Aaron Skogen

    #19 My pleasure, Lisa. I believe featuring some of the hives I previously featured will help bring them back around, just like giving older posts another chance. I am going to feature older specific hives and hives in Spanish in my future HiveTalks. I need to visit mine too - a 2017 goal.

    #18 Thank you SO much @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman! I haven't been able to visit the hive as often as I was. Work has been very busy on this end but the hive has sure grown so I don't want it to go by the wayside. I will try to visit it every few days, together we can help it to grow more. Your such a good person, I appreciate you!!

    Ambassadorship~ Do I Qualify?
    Ambassadorship~ Do I Qualify?I am humbled by my recent designation as a beBee Brand Ambassador, but, philosophical musings began to arise- maybe I think too much; maybe not. I do accept it and if for any reason it is revoked in the future, I will not be bitter about that...

    Hey Chas! Congrats again! Outside beBee land Brand Ambassadors are engaged/contracted or bought to endorse something good (or even dubious), irrespective of their patronage or conviction in the efficacy of the product or service being endorsed. Here the only thing that matters is your belief in beBee. If you got the title from beBees, rest assured, you earned it in full. What's left to do is to do what AmBees are supposed to do, best you can ;) I felt like an AmBee long before it was announced. I even expressed that. Because I believed then as I do now that this is the place for incubating value-based relationships that go the distance. That go into personal space as deeply as they do into professional space. Keep buzzing away!

    I just read through the comments and agree with everyone. If Javier feels you qualify, then by golly, you sure do! @Chas ✌️ Wyatt, you are an uplifting person with a very positive attitude. I'm glad you were appointed. Loved reading about your journey on Social Media. I used to be a myspace addict until it fell apart, then we all left at once and joined Facebook. I have a love/Hate relationship with facebook. We don't use it for business because it doesn't suit my husband's needs. I used to have fun being 'me' on facebook until family members I hardly know found me, friends from HS found me and on the list goes. Now, I feel I can't just let loose like I used to there. That was sort of my playground ;-) My first experience with chat on the internet was using Windows 3.11 IRC. Wow... talk about a dinosaur but I made connections and even went to Penn State and volunteered at a golf outing for some friends I met online. I attended their awards dinner and met the infamous Jerry Sandusky and Joe Paterno... ick, cant believe I actually shook hands with Sandusky now!

    #37 @Aleta Curry I hope that you are feeling better; I just wanted to say that both you and @Chas ✌️ Wyatt make me feel less isolated --I also have no FB, Twitter, Snap, Instagram, etc. accounts --I feel like I don't know what's going on half the time...but that's the "price" I guess... I don't want those things.
    Again Chas, I think that you are a cool (and cool headed) ambassador!

    Thanks for tagging me, Chas ✌️ Wyatt Sorry, I had a medical emergency (sudden, severe drop in Iron levels) and I've been resting (yes, really!) for a couple of days.

    I see everyone has already addressed your 'fitness for ambassadorship' questions, so there's nothing for me to add. I will speak a little to your chronicle of your social media journey, though, which I read with great interest. I think we've been at beBee a comparable length of time, though you were here first and I remember how happy I was when I got your 'follow'. Your social web journey is very similar to mine, and these are the reasons, I daresay, you brought this to my attention.

    Since I have spent so much time marketing my business, I have tended to stick to the large venues, with one caveat: the system has to work for me, that is, it has to be pretty intuitive and easy to use. I also have to get the feeling that there is engagement of some sort; the writer in me just wants to know that *someone* is reading what I write. beBee answers that for me, so that's why I'm here and that's why I tell others about it. It's really a matter of customer satisfaction: you put out a good and useful product, your fame spreads by word of mouth. That's it, really.

    Like you, I still don't get the charm of Twitter; Facebook I do use because, as I've said before, Facebook for business is invaluable to what we do. Since you mention Pinterest, I'll say that it might suit you, because you are an artist. I have an account there but just can't keep up so it's staledated. I might also suggest Ello; the reason I'm not active there is because it's such a visual platform that seems to really suit people with portfolio, which is why I mention it to you.

    Okay, that's it. And yeah: you're a great Ambassador, blah blah blah. :D
